Why are Camping World and Forest River divorcing?

We took our Forester to our local Camping World today and learned that they are no longer doing warranty work for forest River. Does anyone have any information on this change?

If you bought your unit from CW, I will bet that the excellent CW network of service centers was a major part of their sales pitch????

Could be many factors, slow to pay for repairs, raise floor plan pricing. We Slow part issue. Could be the dealer got caught stealing and termination of dealer sale to just a certain dealerships. Or they are going out of business.

From my experience with Camping World in Akron Ohio Forest River is probably divorcing them because they give them a bad name. Every problem that you encounter with them they blame it on the manufacturer when actually it's not the manufacturers fault.

back in the day, it was fleetwood. our local dealer was doing 100,000 warranty a month. techs spending 1.5 hours a day working and 6.5 writing. camping world has lost parts to internet sales. the local CW leases for 45000 a month. thats a lot of overhead. I would imagine FR is balking at warranty expenses...

I was speaking with an RV tech the other day and he warned me to steer clear of CW. He said they have had nothing but trouble with units serviced at CW. He recommended I go back to dealer I purchased from.

Camping World is currently doing the Warranty work on my Forester 2501. It's taking awhile to get things done, but I've never been told by Camping World that they would no longer work on Forest River RVs in the future.

The ability to do warranty work on my Forester was the main reason I bought my RV from Camping World and not another dealer.

I think we need one of the Forest River Reps following this Forum to confirm or deny this allegation about the relationship between Camping World and Forest River being terminated. It might just be one Camping World dealer that is being so unscrupulous that Forest River is severing ties with them and not the whole company. We all know that warranty work varies greatly from one dealership to another and perhaps Forest River has just had enough with one particular dealer and not the whole company.
